    Laughed right out loud this was so flavorful! You can’t NOT smile. I was going to put in poppyseeds, but I’m glad I didn’t. So! dang! Tart! My mouth is literally still watering.

    The cake looks beautiful! I did add 1/4 cup of flour and used an injector to put in the glaze..... I'll review again after we actually eat a piece. The grands are hard critics. LOL

    it was a touch too sweet for me, but everyone at a family Christmas party LOVED it. I didn't use an angel food pan and instead used one of my pretty bundt pans and it turned out just fine.

    fantastically moist and flavorful I was suspect of the orange juice but it worked well preventing an overpowering lemon taste. The lemon glaze is sweet and tart but melded well into the cake

    Very moist!!! Very delicious!!! I usually add pudding when I make box cake! Adding the orange juice was different and it turned out amazing!! I didn't have a sifter but I just used the back of my measuring cup to smooth the sugar out. My glaze wasn't lumpy at all!! I also used my bundt pan instead! I cooked my cake for around 36 minutes!

    Tastes really good. I did separate the egg whites and yolks. I beat the yolks with the cake mix, lemon pudding, oil and OJ. Then I folded in the beaten egg whites. Glaze is super tart which I love.
